Daltile Redesigns Tile Sample Kits
Being able to see, touch and test tile samples in a space has always been important for architects and designers, but it is often cumbersome for architectural representatives to tote around large samples, and difficult for designers to store them in small studio spaces. Despite the heft of the overall boards, the actual tile pieces were typically too small to really get a sense for what a full installation might look like.
Daltile was challenged with the task of slimming down samples kits, while maximizing the ability to preview and specify product. They took a hint from a hack architectural representatives were already using – shoe boxes to carry 4×4 samples – as inspiration for a new design.
The new Daltile sample kits house 2” x 6” and 4” x 6” pieces mounted to small rectangular boards that provide product technical information in a clear, concise layout. Several boards can fit snuggly inside a shoe-box size container that is easy to transport to client visits, and small enough for designers to keep on hand in their library, a welcome change to traditional architectural binders.
Daltile is arming their representatives with boxes over the next few months and hope to duplicate the design for all new product launches moving forward.
